Beating the Virus: A free downloadable story

A new resource on Coronavirus – For children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. 

We hope you are keeping well in these difficult times.
Our big news is that we are in the process of creating a special resource about Coronavirus. The current pictures are in black and white. We are making them available now for free for anyone who is in urgent need.

In the story, we meet Kali again (some of you might recognise her from ‘Belonging’) when she starts to feel poorly with a cough and a temperature. Our short wordless story will help people to understand what to do if you have Coronavirus (COVID-19) to keep yourself and those you care about safe. The story also shows how you can safely help others who may be self-isolating.

Supplementary text at the end of the story gives information on where people can seek help if they are unwell and signposts to other useful resources.
This is an evolving resource which we will be updating regularly as our artist, Lucy Bergonzi, refines and colours the pictures.
